Chassis of 2011 Scuderia Ferrari passes crash tests

Article by Christian Andrei, on January 2, 2011

To prepare a car for the upcoming season, it has to pass a series of crash tests. Scuderia Ferrari could now proceed with the development of its 2011 racer after the chassis for the model has recently passed the tests.

According to Italian media, the vehicle has overcome this first step, which Ferrari has been awaiting in order to continue with working on the successor of their F10 challenger.

This is because in comparison to the predecessor, the 2011 chassis features several vital revisions in terms of construction and composite materials.

It has been reported that the materials used for the construction of the 2011 car are more extreme. A report from GMM revealed that Ferrari's crash test chief Davide Terletti investigated a crack that opened on the surface of the monocoque.

But this was not enough to cause the chassis to fail the tests. These mandatory monocoque tests are conducted under FIA guidelines and in the presence of an official observer at the CSI technical facility in Bollate, near Milan.

There will be more crash tests to be done but these will be done on other parts of the Ferrari car, not the basic chassis.
